Umberg/Zipser attorneys were prominent at the recently concluded 41st Annual Seminar of the Association of Business Trial Lawyers (“ABTL”). The program’s theme was “The Science of Decision Making,” and hundreds of attorneys and judges from the five ABTL chapters across the state attended.
Tom Umberg spoke on a panel discussing “How Juries Decide and How We Help Them Decide,” offering insights gleaned from his 100+ trials. Adina Stowell, who serves on the Board of the Orange County ABTL Chapter, was on the planning committee for the seminar. During the seminar, she worked with the mock jury for the opening and closing argument panels and helped coordinate the final seminar panel, “How Do They Really Make Decisions.”
Umberg/Zipser attorneys are long-time supporters of ABTL. All of the firm’s lawyers are members, Dean Zipser is a past President of the Orange Chapter who remains very active in the organization, Adina Stowell, in addition to serving on the Board, is a former editor of the Chapter’s newsletter, and Carole Reagan is a former member of the newsletter’s editorial board.
